    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very supportive and fun work culture. My co-workers and boss are terrific. First company I have worked at in a long time where there are so few complainers and virtually everyone is upbeat. Great work-life balance with flexible hours, work from home option, casual dress, and decent paid time off. Salary and benefits are good and bonus payouts are excellent thanks to strong company performance.

    Cons

    A lot of money has been invested in the office environment for engineering but other department offices are not so great. There are also too many systems that require separate logins, don't talk to each other, and are not easily modified to meet current needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO is great at communicating the company direction to the employees and generating enthusiasm throughout the organization. I think the leaders below the CEO need to do more positive communication and make more effort to be better in sync with each other - seems like sometimes parts of the organization are going in opposite directions.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility, great work/life balance, competitive salary/wage, great culture. They are also looking to hire more young adults, I began as an intern here and was given a full time position.

    Cons

    No real cons other than the difficulties that come with being a global organization such as communication barriers and understanding other cultures.

    I worked at Kronos Incorporated as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The internship program at Kronos was unbelievable. It redefines the meaning of internship. The experience allows for so much opportunity and knowledge and it was also SO fun!!! My experience at Kronos was extraordinary in so many different areas. While listing them all would make for a better Pros description I would not even know where to start. The culture and environment at Kronos is unlike anything. Everyone is so supportive and upbeat!

    Cons

    Every workplace will come with Cons, but from my personal experience I did not see anything worth noting besides my advice to management!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that the upper management directly under the CEO of Kronos needs to make a greater effort to be as communicative about how their views of Kronos line up with his! The CEO of Kronos is spectacular. He makes his message known and it is a great one. He is such a respectable leader!

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company invests in its sales force with training (sales as well as some technical) and management is very engaged and most (even at the VP level and higher) are pretty approachable and willing to help.

    Cons

    Nothing unique to Kronos but there have been some growing pains in the past few years as the company has grown. Most issues seem to be getting ironed out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The engineering organization at Kronos has gone through a significant positive transformation over the past few years. Innovation and new ideas are encouraged, senior management is very receptive and inspires everyone in the organization to do their best, the technology is close to cutting edge. Employee engagement is taken very seriously and managers are held responsible for their teams' engagement.

    Cons

    Kronos has a hard time recruiting great engineers because of the ongoing perception (false) that it is not exciting and cutting edge.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Kronos is a very conservative company with a conservative approach to business. However, our VC owners have assisted Kronos in expanding successfully into new international markets.

    Cons

    There are very few cons. From a sales perspective, it is always about your territory and your relationship with your direct report.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly be a little more aggressive in acquiring some key competitors.

    Pros

    Flexibility, forward thinking, casual work environment, approachable management team, fantastic benefits, supportive manager.

    Cons

    Still working out how work flows into the Center so there are challenges that come along with this, however, it is good experience to navigate those challenges. Because the Center takes an innovative approach there are a lot of changes that take place that require it's employees to be flexible which works for most of us but not all.

    Pros

    Leadership team (C-Level) is top notch with rare exception. CEO is exceptional leader able to be intense, decisive, and affable. Colleagues are all focused on working hard and in most departments there is a family -like atmosphere.

    Cons

    Slow to affect change. Changes are made but the process can be challenging for those who lack patience. Will be frustrating to some leaders.
